New and improved, LATICRETE® NXT™ Skim is a premium quality, fast-drying, cement-based underlayment designed for skim-coating, smoothing and leveling prior to the application of floor coverings. The improved formula can now hold more water, resulting in a creamier consistency for a smoother application and sleeker finish, as well as an extended pot life and easier troweling.
In a first amongst skim-coating products, the NXT Skim packaging has also been redesigned with a tin tie resealable feature that allows the product to be saved for additional uses, minimizing product waste and increasing cost savings for the installer.
NXT Skim can be applied from skim depth to 1″ (0 – 25 mm) and the finished flooring can be installed as soon as 20 minutes after application. Designed to meet UL GREENGUARD® certification standards for low chemical emissions, the new NXT Skim can be utilized at high profile jobsites, including hospitals and schools.
